Help with interpreting NMR and IR spectrums

  1. Dec 7, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Would anyone be able to tell me if I'm on the right track with determining the peaks on these NMR spectrums? We had to synthesize a product of Chalcone and then hydrogenate it to obtain an unknown product that we have to correctly identify. This had been quite a difficult spectrum for me to interpret and any input would be appreciated! For the IR spectrums, I think I have the right peaks determined and noticed that the carbonyl shift was at 1660 cm-1 on the Chalcone IR and then switched to a higher energy level in the hydrogenated spectrum at 1675 cm-1 from the chalcone spectrum. Is this due to resonance?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
